25% off all books for PBS Members

Welcome to your Gift Membership!


If you've received a Poetry Book Society gift membership, this page is for you!

The PBS is a special membership organisation and book club. Every quarter, in spring, summer, autumn and winter, we will be sending you a selection of the best new poetry books published in the UK, from a range of authors around the world. But first, you need to activate your membership.


Activating your membership

Activating your gift membership is simple. All you need is your gift code - as found on your gift certificate - and email it to us with your name and postal address to

If email isn't your thing, you can call us on 0191 230 8100 (or 0044 191 230 8100 if overseas) or post your gift code, name, postal address and email address if appicable to Poetry Book Society, Milburn House, Dean Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1LF, UK

Once you've activated your membership, we will send you a new member's welcome pack with our latest edition of the Bulletin.

By default gift memberships are for our classic Choice Membership, in which you will receive the PBS Choice book (as chosen by our expert poetry selectors as the most impressive book of that quarter) alongside our flagship publication, the Bulletin. In some cases, you may have received a different sort of membership - in which case, we will have slipped a note in with your gift parcel.

We look forward to hearing from you soon to set up your membership, so that we can send you the best in contemporary poetry!
